In this study, silver (Ag) nanoparticles were successfully biosynthesized from AgNO 3 through a simple green route using the lichen extract [Cetraria islandica (L) Ach] as a reducing and stabilizing agent. The mean sizes of spherical Ag nanoparticles with diameters ranging from 5 nm to 29 nm were obtained at different reaction conditions. The nanoparticles were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS) and Fourierdoi:10.1515/gps-2014-0024 fatcat:a6hmo62i6nhe3dgnqlx5a7uire
